Best fabric ever
I have a light weight hoody made from this same fabric and used it back packing and hiking. Super comfortable fit and the fabric is super soft. I bought this shirt as a casual shirt that I can be active in as well and it has not disappointed. I was skeptical about the colour at first but after trying it on its actually really great.
White shirts get stained very easily
I have at least 7 of these shirts and the non white colors are great. I have 3 white ones and they get stained very easily and the stains dont come out. I dont have this issue with the other colors or other white shirts.
Hi McKinnon, we're very sorry to hear about the trouble with staining. Please take some time to check out our [Product Care](https://www.patagonia.com/product-care.html) page. There you'll find great ideas to tackle tough stains.
Great Products/Great Colors
Been hitting the trails a lot with a new mountain bike and buying lots of tech-t shirts and shorts for on the trails and daily wear. All have been perfect. The quality of all my purchases have been awesome. Perfect fit, perfect materials, perfect colors. Will do a few more purchases and finish swapping out all my old capilene to use for in-home gym... Read More and replace with the new capilene - my entire wardrobe is Patagonia now. I like the new capilene a lot more than the older version (not as thick as the old capilene I have and better colors), but all my old t-shirts are still in great shape after many years of use. Really like the bright colors that are a little muted with the white ticking. The ticking makes the colors bright but not too intense which is sometimes an issue. My wardrobe is now pretty much entirely Patagonia. For colors it seems Im missing a muted goldish sort of color with the same white ticking. Would be nice if you could come up with a light muted gold color for these tech-ts.
As good as (not) advertised. Stumbled on these at REI. Terrific top for runs, heat, beach, water, boat, everything. A little thin and shows my less than perfect parts, but thats not really the shirts fault. Performance is terrific. I like the graphic and think they somehow fit a bit better than the plain.
Sizing has fluctuated a bit over the years. Couple years ago size large was huge, now it is a bit shorter and more form fitting. I have several large and extra large. Both are ok as far as fit. The fabric and shirts themselves are amazing. Wick sweat, don't stink, and dry fast. Love hiking, paddle boarding, sailing, or kayaking in these shirts... Read More.

I wear these shirts about every day. Working from home they are the most comfortable, best fitting, look good with any thing shirt I own. They extended the length in the last couple seasons by about two inches, which is really good. The last version was way too short and I was looking for a replacement. I even bought a few of the long sleeve ones a... Read Morend may get the hoody too.
Athletic T-Shirt Material
Great Tee. Its a workout/running shirt. Definitely not the cotton feel. Its that quick drying synthetic athleisure work out shirt kinda of feel and material.

The absolute best!
I regularly take off other tops right before a run to put this one on instead! Its so good i get sad thinking about wearing another shirt during a long run. It feels good under a pack, and against the skin. It breathes very well, and dries incredibly quickly. The two i own have been through a few hundred miles now, and i just ordered two more to st...

I snagged this for my husband while it was on sale since he loves his Patagonia capilene shirts so much. They're true to size, silky feeling, breathe well and are comfortable in a variety of situations. The orange color looks true to the photos. Hes 510, 190 with a broad chest and shoulders and the XL fits perfectly.
My favorite All Activity Shirt
Iv been looking for a shirt to call my favorite. I love the feel and fit. I'm a thin no muscle 5'5 guy and this shirt just sits perfectly on my body. I wear this around the house in my sleepwear pants, in my Levi jeans to work or out to dinner. I'm looking forward to wearing it in the warm seasons biking, hiking, or anything. I can g...

My son loves the feel and fit of these capilene shirts. He has worn Patagonia t's for many years. An annoyance, however, is the company's recent need to print graphics all over their shirts to advertise their "cause." Buyers don't necessarily want to wear "anti-oil and save the planet" graphics all over these nice... Read More, simple, classic t-shirts.

Best short sleeve active shirt around
I have worn short sleeve activity shirts from many, many brands. These are the best. From summer lounging, backpacking or running, they cannot be beat. Light, dry quickly and can be worn several days while backpacking and don't smell. Would be embarrassed to tell you how many different ones I have.
Perfect fabric, perfect fit
I have worn the non-graphic version of the Capilene t-shirt for years and love it. It wears like iron and wicks sweat efficiently. The Daily Graphic Shirt has an even better fit (a little trimmer), and the graphics are fun. These are my go-to t-shirts for everything. Love them.
Great fit for tall people but holes in fabric form quickly
Initially loved the shirt; perfect fit, material, comfort. But I cannot spend this much money on a shirt that has to be hand washed otherwise it rips. Got two of these shirts and both formed many holes simply from washing in cold water and hang drying within a few washes.
super versatile shirt
I have been wearing this shirt for about 4 weeks and it has been really perfect in a number of roles. I wear when I'm traveling as a t shirt that doesn't smell and can be worn longer between washing. I wore it almost every day on a 5 day mountain biking trip, although I didn't wear it while actually biking because I wanted long sleev... Read Morees while I was on the bike and in the sun. I've worn it hiking as well under a sun shirt and that worked really well for me. It washes beautifully and really doesn't smell even after a few sweaty afternoon hikes. I liked it so much I bought a second one in a different color.
Been wearing these since they first came out with them as SPF. I bought them for the feel, look, and their versatility. I still buy them, and would love more colors. This is a no-brainer purchase. Plus, I LOVE knowing whatever they make off of me is going to a hella good cause. THANK YOU, Patagonia.
Light and stretchy shirt is perfect for running
Fits true to size until it shrinks. I have a few of these and some have shrunk a whole size down.
Hi Andy! Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We're really sorry to hear that the shirt shrunk so badly. Your satisfaction is always guaranteed so you're welcome to [return](https://www.patagonia.com/returns.html).
My go to shirt
Has quickly become my favorite t-shirt. The material is super soft and allows the breeze to pass through just the right amount. While the material is technical, it has a casual but not too loose cut that looks great for any situation. The odor control works great as well so you can wear it all day. Highly recommend.
Cool and Breezy
6'0 165LBS fairly slender build, choose a large cause I use to get the capilene dailies in M but realized they were a bit small in the arms and to the waist. Didn't want to show my belly every time I reach above my head. This iteration fits well and slight bag but I prefer it that way so I can cool off easier in the summers. Soft to the ... Read Moretouch and no iterating tags or stitches when moving. Really a solid shirt. Would recommend to others.
So comfortable, so light.
Big fan of this product. It's very light and easy on the skin. Perfect for a hot day because I barely feel like I'm wearing anything. I even used it as a light base layer under a hoodie because it gets cool at night here in SoCal. Keeps me from overheating or sweating too much sitting in traffic too. Very comfortable!
Slightly boring name for it? Is that the question?
The shirt is great! It did have a loose thread on the bottom hem, but other than that, it has been superb.
Hey Maria-Louise, thanks for the review. If the shirt arrived with the loose thread, you're welcome to reach out to us so we could set you up for a warranty return and replacement. Please reach out to our [customer service team](https://help.patagonia.com/s/) to proceed with this.
The Swiss-Army knife of Daily Shirts
I purchased my first Capilene® Cool Daily shirt back in 2019. I have used that shirt to climb, hike, travel, and swim. This shirt can do it all and stands up to some severe abuse in a variety of environments. I currently own 3 and honestly, if I could, I would wear them every day. The material is breathable, tough, and keeps the sun off. 10/10 prod... Read Moreuct from Patagonia.
I bought three of the same shirt and owned one already. Love the shirts. But of the three I bought the dark blue is tighter than the other two I ordered and the one I had. By the time I realized it was uncomfortable I had already worn it. All are the same size but this one is smaller. Maybe you can still exchange. Thank you. Sam
The perfect shirt. It can
The perfect shirt. It can be saturated by sweat or a rainstorm or the ocean. It will never smell and it can dry in ten minutes. Example: It's 85 out. Hardcore frisbee on the beach. You're perspiring madly and the shirt doesn't even stick to ya. Jump in the ocean and cool off. After you come out it's dry in less than ten minutes.... Read More Aaaand it looks good and fits comfortably. Whatever the heck it's made of doesn't seem to disintegrate in the dryer. (I know I know but I'm too lazy to separate it out of a load of laundry) In case they ever stop making them I bought four.
You can wear it everywhere
In short I wear the heck out of these shirts. I live in sunny Florida and between April and November, these have replaced cotton t shirts for me. I wear them as surf shirts, apres cycling wear (or as a cycling jersey for casual rides), around the house, to sleep in, casual day at the office (most days due to Zoom), out to Trivia Night, to the gym, ... Read Moreyou name it. I have discovered that I can wear the hooded long sleeve model with some board shorts and a Duckbill Trucker, hop in my pool to get wet and cut grass comfortably in Florida heat. Once the ensemble dries, I hop back in the pool to re wet and finish the yard. The fit is not oversized so the shirts function well as surf shirts. They are microbial so they work well for mtn bike road trips to Georgia and North Carolina because they will last a few days for each wear. The long sleeves work well for boating. I have both graphics and solids. The graphics are tasteful and don't make this 57 year old look too "Peter Pan". All in all a great shirt for coping with climate change here in Florida.
These shirts are incredibly comfortable. They're lightweight and thin and great for the outdoors, especially in warmer climates. Wore these on a recent trip to Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons and they were so great that I ordered a few more! I'm 5'11" / 170 lbs so the large is a little big, but I like my shirts to be a little ... Read Moreon the large side. Not sure if the medium would be a better fit for me though.
This is my Daily shirt during the charter season
These shirts are the softest most comfortable thing I have found over a 20+ year guiding career. Quick to dry after a summer rainstorm. I wear this shirt along with Patagonia shorts every day. They get washed and dried daily as well and hold up for a long time.
We're so glad to hear your positive feedback on our Capilene Cool Shirt! Here are some great [product care](https://www.patagonia.com/product-care.html) tips to help keep your shirt in great condition for many years to come.
Lightweight and Cooling
After one hike I can give a better review now. Im very happy with this shirt. It was lightweight, comfortable (not itchy) and cooling. The only slightly negative feedback is that it seems to be a tad shorter than most shirts that I buy. That could be completely a personal preference though. Overall very happy with it.
Perfect fit and versatile
I don't know about anyone else, but one thing I can't stand about most t-shirts is that they're too long and hang down past my butt--super annoying. This shirt is the perfect fit, both in terms of length and its nice relaxed roominess at the chest and mid section (I actually have pecs and lats and the trendy super slim chest fit on s... Read Moreo much active wear tops is like a noose). On top of that the Cap Cool material is the ideal tropic weight and has an excellent hand for synth, and the minimalist stitching and narrow hems are out of the way and a joy to wear. Bottom line: I bought 3 so far and not done yet.
Incredibly soft and moisture-controlling
I own many of these shirts now and love each one. As a pretty sweaty person, these shirts are great at wicking away that moisture and leaving me feeling cool and comfortable. As a woman, I love purchasing men-marketing shirts like these for more room in the shoulders and armpits, so expect a more relaxed fit if you are a woman.
